(22oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) Pours medium brown with a ring of bubbles. Nose of honey, caramel, and sweet bread. Taste of toasted caramel, alcohol, raisins, rum, with a good oily slick finish, and a medium bitterness. Creamy too. Nice!

Thanks to Suttree for this one. A rusty red pour. Excellent aroma of dried fruits and hops. A fruity cherry flavor that fades to a date flavor. Carbonation is good but the palate is just a tad thin. A smooth full bodied BW. thanks Phil

650ml bottle pours an orangeish brown color with about 2 fingers of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing behind. Aroma is grainy with some fruit and alcohol. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a bit of fruit and a lingering hoppy bitter finish. A really nice barley wine that I thoroughly enjoyed tasting.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tawny ruby color, oily slick head with some retentive rings of lacing like a rescue crew. Nose of sweet plums, malt, fig, licorice, alcohol. Super tasty smell. Tastes roasty and chocolatey with strong alcohol notes and finish. Complex, a bit balanced and very anticipated. I like! Strong alcohol in the finish and overall palate.

On draft at the brewery. Somewhat murky dark orange pour, with a thin off white head. Sweet sugary, caramel, rotting fruit, and harsh bitterness. No thanks.

Medium orange color. Small to medium white foamy head. Aroma is raisins, bananas and sweet malts. A medium to full bodied barley wine. Malts are fruity and sweet. Tons of banana, clove, brown sugar and vanilla flavors. Hops are grapefruity and spicy. A well-balanced barley wine. Very smooth. Finish is very clean. Very mellow as it has aged well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Thanks to Dr. Bill for sharing this one as well.

(22oz bottle) Purchased at Bottlewerkz, Seattle. I seemingly didn’t mind this beer as much as everyone else? It was very velvety in texture and had a nice brown sugar and spice flavour. Good.
